The Casting Out of Sin and the Seducer by HJ-Valdi The Casting Out of Sin and the Seducer by HJ-Valdi
I'm not actually a religious person, but it's hard to deny how evocative some religious content is, especially when depicted through art.

On top of that, at the moment I really want to try creating images that have a high art feel to them. That, to me, means working with the same sort of subject matter the masters would have used. Myth, legend and religion were popular themes, so there's my commonality.

There's still some noise to the render, but as it took 97 hours to reach 3000 samples in Lux, I decided to call it quits and move on to something else.

Image uses Oni Horns by Cool Tuna [link]

Created using Daz 4.5 Pro, Reality 2.5 + Luxrender 1.0, PS CS5 and a Wacom Bamboo.

Thanks for looking! :happybounce:

Very nicely done with the fog and light rays - I wrestle with the fog in reality from time to time; currently I am down 5 falls to 1 ... ;)
Nice touch with the apple!

Thank you very much. Greatly appreciated :)

Lol, yeah the fog prop is something I'm still trying to get my head around properly too.

Wow! Love the god rays. I'm not surprised it took so long.

Love all the details, including the apple. The high art feel is what makes this so spectacular.

I'm new to using Lux, and I've run into them. I'd love to know how you did yours.

I'm not sure what software you're using Lux with, but I use Daz 4.5 Pro (it's free). One of the plug-ins available for Daz is called Reality. It acts as a bridge between Daz and Lux, but one of the props you get with it is a fog prop. There's a good tutorial by Paolo -the guy who created Reality- that shows him explaining how to do the light rays using the fog prop [link].

The only difference between how he does it in the video and how I did it is that I used a Sunlight (which you also get with Reality). For some reason using a mesh light wasn't enough for me.

Hope that helps. :)

Reality is a little cheaper at the moment, and it doesn't get reduced in price too often. [link] :)
